This page lists all GED test centers and prep locations in the Altus area. Oklahoma uses the fully computerized GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
The state also embraced the HiSET exam for this purpose which is available in both paper-based and computerized versions.
HiSET and GED testing can be done both online (at home) and at certified test centers.
The assessments give individuals who quit high school prematurely the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED® exam has four independent subtests in the fields of Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies.
You can take one of these subtests (modules) at a time. There’s no need to take it all in one session.
The HiSET® exam includes five subject tests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that can be done separately as well.
In earlier days, you could never sit for the GED or HiSET exam in an online format. Now, fortunately, that has changed with the arrival of online proctored GED and HiSET testing options. For more information, check below.

New online GED and HiSET tests
It used to be that students looking to earn their Oklahoma HSE (high school equivalency) diploma always had to appear, in person, at one of the state’s official HSE testing sites. Online testing was simply never offered. But now, we’ve witnessed the introduction of both HiSET and GED OP (online proctored) test-taking options.
For more details about the online HiSET proctored exam, go to this article: ‘Introducing the online HiSET exam,’ and to get informed about the recently launched O.P. (online proctored) GED testing option, visit ‘Introducing the online GED test.’

Besides the GED, Oklahoma also introduced an alternative, the HiSET exam. This option is slightly cheaper than the GED and is offered both in a paper-and-pencil format and on a computer. The GED passing score for each of the four separate modules is 145.
To pass the HiSET exam, you need to score at least 8 (out of 20) points on each of the five subtests. Your total score must be in the 45-100 range, and your essay result must be at least a score of 2 out of 6.
In the United States, we still can find some forty million adults who never finished high school, and successful completion of the GED test will definitely result in a better future. Every year, over 500,000 adults pass the GED tests, and you could do the same.
People with a GED credential make around $9,600 more per year than those who do not have a secondary education degree. So you see, it really pays off to spend time getting ready for the GED exam!
It’s not only about the financial rewards, though. Having a rewarding career will also boost your self-esteem, and having a brighter future is what it’s all about, wouldn’t you agree?
